Singapore Telecommunications Report Q1 2013

Publisher Name :
Date: 30-Jan-2013
No. of pages: 99

Singapore’s telecommunications industry has outperformed many of its regional peers with strong adoption of the latest products and services. Partially due to the country’s small landmass and population size, the telecoms market has rapidly grown to a stage where it is approaching saturation. Next generation technologies, both mobile and fixed, are therefore the next step in fostering new developments and revenue streams, and industry players – the regulator and operators – have rightly moved in that direction.

Key Data:

  • The forecast scenarios for Singapore’s mobile, fixed-line and internet markets as well as operators’ ARPUs have been extended to 2017.
  • In spite of the launch of next generation LTE services, we continue to forecast operators’ ARPUs to trend lower due to competition; we predict the market average to reach SGD46 in 2017.
  • We expect the number of 3G/4G phone subscribers in Singapore to reach 7.198mn in 2017, representing 81.6% of the total mobile market of 8.815mn subscribers.

  • Pakistan Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2015
    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    BMI View: Pakistan continues to present major challenges to vendors, and underperform its potential due to a number of economic, social and political risks. However, the large population and rising incomes mean there are still opportunities for vendors. Although political and security concerns remain, the economic environment is supportive of expansion, with rising incomes, consumption growth, and encouragingly, private sector credit growth has also recovered from its recent trough. The opportun......

    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 85
    BMI View: The economic crisis in 2014 had a major disruptive impact on the Argentine IT market, with the devaluation of the peso, import restrictions, skyrocketing inflation, capital controls, shortage of credit and government debt default all contributing to a recession. We estimate the IT market expanded in local currency terms, but contracted by 26% in US dollar terms. We expect another year of US dollar contraction in 2015 due to depreciation and inflation, but over the medium term the outlo......
  • Pakistan Telecommunications Report Q2 2015
    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 96
    BMI View: Pakistan's telecommunications market is one of the most underdeveloped in the Asia Pacific region. The regulator has successfully auctioned its 3G licences, paving the way for higher value-added services (VAS) to be introduced to the market. This leaves Pakistan with significant room for growth, although the potential might only materialise in the medium- to long-term. Key Data ? According to the latest data provided by the PTA, there were 135.762mn mobile subscribers in the country at......
  • Romania Telecommunications Report Q2 2015
    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 107
    BMI View: The Romanian mobile market is struggling to recover from declines seen in 2011-2012 as growth failed to return in 2014. BMI believes this to be a result of cautionary consumer habits during a period of economic weakness as well as discounting inactive subscribers. As GDP per capita rebounds as of 2015, the Romanian telecommunications sector will recover in lock-step, but despite this, the market will only grow an average of 0.4% per annum until the end of our forecast. The medium-term ......

However, our bullish outlook for IT market spending growth over the medium term remains unchanged, although prospects for rand depreciation against the US dollar weigh on the outlook. The IT market continues to primarily be driven by government spending as well as large enterprises, both of which are exp......

    Published: 1-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 87
    BMI View: Strong economic growth and a government that is supportive of digitalisation underpin our IT growth forecast as this is also likely to filter through in a shape of increased government spending. We forecast a CAGR of 15.4% for IT market spending 2015-2019, with the market expected to increase to a value of LRK188.8bn in 2019. We believe Sri Lanka will outperform the majority of IT markets in the APAC region due to a convergence of factors. Strong income growth and low penetration of PC......
